Act 2, Scene 2 Summary

Robin the Ostler enters, carrying a book that he stole from Faustus. Robin, a poor man, is very happy with his new acquisition because it will allow him to conjure devils or enchant women to do his bidding. In fact, Robin intends to use it to make women dance naked in front of him and give in to his desires for sex.

As Robin exults in the power offered by the book he stole, Robin's friend Rafe enters. Finding his friend so happy, Rafe asks Robin what he is doing and Robin tells him about the book and offers Rafe the chance to use it as well. Of course, Rafe is ecstatic at the opportunity because he can use it to sleep with Nan Spit, a maid that he has had his eye on.
